History

Return of Ultraman

FEMIGON

By the first scene of the series, Femigon had already possessed Yuriko Oka, the communication officer of MAT and unintentionally caused her to lose focus on her job, both of which is nearly fatal to her teammates during their flight in MAT Arrow. As she was sent on a month-long rest, Femigon possessed Yuriko midway in her return to home and attacked an oil complex in Boso Peninsula. Femigon disappeared that night just to return to Yuriko's form once arriving home, but her petroleum stench remains.

The next day, Femigon took over again to attack another oil complex in Chiba. Hideki Go transforms into Ultraman Jack to fight the space monster and chased it to the depths of the sea, where Femigon was about to attack MAT's headquarters. Jack ended the battle with Ultra Spark, causing Femigon to disappear and returning Yuriko to the nearby beach. The Targeted Woman

Trivia

  • Suit actor: Takanobu Toya
    • The Femigon suit had a bump on its back; this is where the suit actor would place his head while the monster's actual head was manipulated by a string.
  • Designer: Akihiko Iguchi
    • Despite its identical appearance to poultry, Femigon's actual design inspiration is a mermaid.
  • By the time Femigon appeared, the world was already clearly having a run of alien invasions, making Femigon's appearance significant as she was not connected to an alien, the first time this happened since Alien Nackle had appeared.
  • There was no proper explanation as to when or how did Femigon even appear in the series, having already possessed the MAT officer Yuriko by the first scene of the series. Multiple books and magazines designates Femigon as a space monster, something that is acknowledged even in Ultraman Mebius. The 2002 Ultraman Pictorial book even stated that Femigon is conglomerate of space monster spirits.
    • Additionally since none of the MAT members witnessed Jack's fight with Femigon underwater, their archived document in Crew GUYS was falsely written to be separated from Yuriko when Jack fired his Specium Ray. This "claim" is even referenced by Teppei (see below) when discussing attempts to separate Misa from the Femigon Flame variant.
  • The Femigon suit was later modified to create the monster, Orolonger, from Jumborg Ace.
  • Femigon's roar is a sped up Gabara roar.
  • Although not physically seen, Femigon is one of the monsters that makes up Beryudora's body in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie.

Ultraman Mebius

Femigoon II

Femigon, as seen in Ultraman Mebius.

A different breed of Femigon reappeared in episode 33 of the series Ultraman Mebius. This variation is known as Femigon Flame (フェミゴンフレイム Femigon Fureimu), complete with a different set of abilities.

A space monster who originally appeared as a hitodama, Femigon possessed a medical student named Misa, causing her to develop pyrokinesis upon experiencing panic attack. A week later, Misa's older brother sought Teppei and the Crew GUYS' help in expelling Femigon even a so-called psychic medium failed to do the job. The night of Misa's admission into her ward, Femigon took over to wreck havoc in an oil complex. Femigon disappeared after that but its sole presence, combined with Misa sharing the same right shoulder injury was enough for Teppei to finally piece all of the problems together. Using MAT's document from Yuriko as a victim, Teppei concluded that an Ultraman's beam is enough to separate the two beings, but this Femigon is different from the first one; at such, killing the monster does not guarantee Misa's safety as well.

The young med student was torn with the option to save either the civilians or Misa, so much so that it jeopardized Mebius' near attempt of killing it. After a thorough research, he finally invented the Spirit Separator, using it on Femigon's final reign of terror before combining with Mebius' Mebium Shoot. The operation was successful, but Misa loses her memories from being possessed by Femigon, including her previous affection for Teppei. Lady of the Blue Fire

Trivia

  • Suit actor: Lou Nishimura
  • Designer: Hiroshi Maruyama
    • Femigon was redesigned in this series with a new coloration on the back thorns, which unfortunately didn't make it to the final cut. However as a distinction to the original Femigon suit, the 2006 version is capable of inserting the suit actor's head into Femigon's long neck.
  • The psychic medium that first appeared to exorcise Femigon Flame from Misa claimed that she was possessed by the spirit of mujina. It is possible that the individual was a fraud, considering that at the very least, a hitodama (Femigon's "actual" form) is actually the soul of a deceased human.
  • In Ultraman Mebius, Femigon can spit fireballs instead of a stream of fire, as with many other reappearing monsters.
